Stacking and Training Strategies Playbook

One Life. Many Dimensions. Your Personal AI.
Life is continuous, so is your personal AI. We all have personalities, aspirations, and dimensions that define who we are and what we want to be. A Personal AI is designed to mimic the life experiences of a human being, to ambiently capture those moments happening around us, and to continuously learn from our past.

The Mindset

Have a never-ending learning mindset for yourself as well as for your personal AI.

The idea of stacking and training isn’t a one-time thing. If you position yourself with an ‘always-learning’ mindset, your AI will help you reap the benefits. This isn’t a matter of training a model or bot just once; rather, a continuous process of learning and building the make-up of your mind. For instance, if one’s personal AI is being used strictly for specific use cases such as summarizing a document or creating a bot for an FAQ, it isn’t being used to its fullest extent.

Make it a part of your daily routine, rather than just a one-time historical training effort.

It’s natural to jump into getting started by plugging all the data you have into your personal AI to extract value from it, but be sure to keep your AI updated on a regular basis to get the most out of it — developing into a true version of you.

Don’t get stuck on what it can do for you today, rather, what it can do for you in ten years; this is your AI, not a pre-trained machine.

You are investing in your AI model because it is yours to utilize to provide value to yourself and those around you. Don’t get deterred by the influence of pre-trained systems around you, as long as you maintain unique knowledge and expertise — your personalized AI system will bring unique value to you.

The Basics

Personal AI is a messaging app in which your AI acts as an extension of you. Your AI learns from messages you send to it and others, as well as from your selections of the suggested responses it provides you.
The UX of your personal.ai app will be similar to that of iMessage, Whatsapp, or Slack.

What is a Personal AI Message?

A message can be just text, an image, a web link, a YouTube clip, rich text, or a file. A message can be sent privately in DM to yourself (your AI) or to others. An incoming message is interpreted as context, intent, or prompt to your AI to draft a response for based on your chosen co-pilot or auto-pilot settings.

Personal AI Terminology:

Stacking- the process of capturing and organizing raw data for your AI.
Training- the process of using algorithms to create a personal language model off your stack. (This is done automatically at the moment with additional capabilites to be made available soon.)
AI Profiles- subsets of data created to organize data within given scopes, to then be able to control which subsets you’d like to share where.

3 ways to stack

1 — Messaging with Self:

You stack by sending messages to yourself (your AI).
Most people associate sending text messages to themselves as their favorite way of keeping track of information on the go. Your personal AI is built on this logic to serve this purpose for you. Any message you send to yourself in app will be remembered by your AI.
In contrast to many messaging services where the intention of sending links and files is to share them with other human beings, your personal AI instead attempts to extract the data from the link or files and stack it.
Here’s a breakdown of how various types of Messages are interpreted by your AI:
  • Short Text or question -> not stacked but consulted with your personal AI for a reply.
Question to my AI (inquiry) with response
Question to my AI (inquiry) with response
  • Longer Text (sentence, paragraph) -> stacked and consulted with your personal AI for a reply.
Paragraph that is stacked

  • Link -> if accessible, (websites, articles, connected Google Docs) the content is stacked.
URL to my AI
URL to my AI
  • Image -> stacked and consulted with your personal AI for a reply (experimental).
  • YouTube video link -> transcribed and stacked.
Youtube video to my AI

  • File attachments -> stacked (coming soon in 2.0 — support for docs, pdfs, and audio files).
  • Clipboard -> the same above rules apply for text coming into your AI via the sync clipboard integration when it is turned on.

2 — Messaging with Others:

You stack by messaging and by responding to messages — with your friends, coworkers, and wider community.
With the 2.0 release, Personal AI will be a messaging tool where every message you send to someone will be used to train your AI. Your AI will not only learn from those messages but also will start drafting suggestions from your own AI.

3 — Messages from Integrations:

You stack by reusing old data sources that you have accumulated over time (Twitter, Clipboard, Google Docs, Google Calendar, and Gmail).
Use integrations to speed up your AI’s learning. Press Cmd+K -> Click Integrations to explore. There are two types of integrations associated with each data source:
  1. 1.
    Connect integration- which will load a URL one at a time (such as with GDrive currently).
  2. 2.
    Sync integration- where the data automatically syncs once connected.

3 ways to train

  1. 1.
    Automated base training (available for everyone): As your Stack grows, the base model is phased out and continues to train and evolve. Given the facts and experience, the base model is more like a baby model that answers questions and generates some thoughts given the message prompts. It’s a personal question-and-answer model that uses shared computing resources.
  2. 2.
    On-demand dedicated training (coming soon): The base model has some limitations such as the number of inference calls (interactions with the AI), the output length of 256 tokens (2 paragraphs), and latency (time for your AI to respond to multiple requests). The advanced model is a dedicated model that runs in its own container. This model will eventually be run on edge such as mobile or computer. It can support up to 100 people talking to your AI and for now, has no limits on inference calls (interactions with the AI).
  3. 3.
    On-demand conversational training (on the roadmap): Using the “reply” function, the base and advanced models have memories of what was said in the previous message. To get back-and-forth messages in a discussion, your personal AI would be required to recall what was said for the last few messages, not only the most recent one. The conversation model will have a long-term memory (the ability to remember the context of many turns on what people are saying back and forth) and will be able to provide further suggestions.

👀 Pick a strategy for your personal AI

Set a purpose for your AI

The primary purpose of your personal AI is to foster deeper conversations with coworkers and peers by using co-pilot and auto-pilot modes that focus on your true forms of expressions when they are available.
You’ll now get to decide what kind of discussions you want to have in your personal AI and with whom:
Use Personal AI Profiles if you have multiple dimensions of what you want to train within your multi-faceted life.
Framework for setting purposes for your personal AI.
Framework for setting purposes for your personal AI.

🎯 Purpose #1 : Deepen connections in my life with my close family and friends.

  1. 1.
    Message in DMs or Lounges with My Close F&F about My Life trained in an AI profile to Deepen Connections.
  2. 2.
    Train this AI profile on personal facts, preferences, stories, hobbies, traits, etc that are usually captured by journaling or sharing them in text chats and conversations.

  3. 3.
    Stack data by formatting this information as if you are an autobiographer in the first person. Here is an example of your outgoing messaging to yourself or others: “I was born in India. My favorite color is yellow. My co-founder is @Sharon Zhang”. Then your personal AI can draft responses for an incoming message such as: “I wanted to make you a personalized gift for your birthday! What color do you like the most?”
